Flip Wilson has flipped his stance.
Giants running back David Wilson, who said earlier this week people should “relax” about his signature celebration, said Friday he changed his mind.
“I think it’s for the team’s best interests,” Wilson said, via Ebenezer Samuel of the New York Daily News. “I don’t want to make anyone upset or nervous or scared. I want to do something that people enjoy rather than worry about.”
Asked what he’d do if he scored against the Falcons, Wilson said he wasn’t sure.
“First thing is just get in the end zone,” he said. “Maybe it will be spontaneous. The main thing is just get in the end zone first.”
Frankly, Wilson’s been doing backflips since he was 3 years old, and it seems like far more has been made of this than should be. But the Giants are nervous, and have made him sufficiently so that he’ll tone it down.
